I get the error message “Could not create Java implementation loader” when I try to install the extension. What can I do?
You are either missing a Java runtime environment on your system, or OpenOffice.org is not configured to use it.
Open a command prompt/terminal window and type java -version to verify that you have a Java runtime environment.
In OpenOffice.org, choose Tools – Options, OpenOffice.org – Java and ensure that there is a Java runtime environment in the list and that the checkbox is selected.
If you are using 64 bit Windows, not that you have to use a 32-bit Java runtime environment.
A few users have reported that they cannot install any Java based extensions despite correct settings. This seems to affect 64-bit Windows 7 with LibreOffice 3.3 or OpenOffice.org 3.3 (OpenOffice.org 3.2 works correctly). Please let me know about your results if you use this combination.
I get the error message “com.sun.star.registry.CannotRegisterImplementationException” when I try to install the extension on Ubuntu. What can I do?
Your are missing a package on your system. To install it, open a terminal window and type
sudo aptitude install openoffice.org-java-common
Why can I not install the extensions in OpenOffice.org on Mac OS X?
On Mac OS X a recent (October 2010) automatic update of the Java runtime environment breaks the integration of Java in OOo 3.2 and earlier. Consequently, you cannot use Writer2LaTeX as an export filter (the command line version is not affected). This bug is fixed in OpenOffice.org 3.3. If you are still using an older version of OOo, see this page for a workaround.
Why does the export dialog show up in a strange language?
If your language is not supported, the dialogs may show up in an arbitrary language; this is due to a bug in OOo. This bug is fixed in OpenOffice.org 3.2.
I have installed Writer2LaTeX as an export filter, but I cannot find it in the Save As menu?
The Writer2LaTeX filters are located in the File – Export menu. This is the place for export-only filters in OpenOffice.org.
I have installed Writer2LaTeX as an export filter, but I cannot find the filters in the Export menu?
First try restarting OpenOffice.org.
In some cases this does not help – this problem has been seen with Ubuntus version of OpenOffice.org. In that case, open the Extension Manager in OpenOffice.org, disable the extension and reenable it. Now restart OpenOffice.org, and the filters should appear.
If this still does not help, try to install any other extension and restart OpenOffice.org.
